Sabrent Makes RAM Now, Launches With DDR5 Sticks

The very slow and steady pace the PC world has taken to embrace DDR5 RAM is finally looking to catch. Between shortages making acquisition difficult, prices remaining above DDR4, and various tests making us wonder if it’s worth the effort, it’s been slow for the new memory format. But that will certainly change, potentially sooner or later.

Finally we start to see hardware get the benefits of DDR5 with perceivable lower latency and faster frequencies than before. although with supplies potentially still in troubleIt’s nice to see more brands like Sabrent, better known for their SSDs like the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 1TBjoining the cause.

seen by 3D Guru, Sabrent is releasing its own line of DDR5 RAM. These new memory modules are released in 8, 16 and 32 GB options with the standard DDR5 speed of 4800 MHz. The sticks will also come in DIMM and SO-DIMM formats, so they should work with a variety of devices.

Many of the other highlights listed seem like pretty standard DDR5 benefits. Features like lower power consumption than DDR4 and more bandwidth sound great, but they’re also what you’d expect when upgrading. As always, if you’re looking to buy new RAM, especially DDR5, make sure your other hardware will be compatible with the new technology.

Sabrent SSDs are known to be quite fast and perform very well in real-world tests. Although they are not always the cheapest or the fastest. Sabrent is also launching a Exciting 8TB variant of Rocket Pluswhich is the maximum capacity supported by the underlying Phison E18 controller.

Having another trusted PC parts manufacturer join the DDR5 initiative will help bring prices down, which could increase as DDR5 enters the market. There are rumors that AMD’s AM5 does not support DDR4 and will require DDR5 RAM at launch. Furthermore, we know the Ryzen 7000 is configured to support DDR5-5200DDR5 so fast will likely become very desirable in the near future.
